RONIN DOJO COMMUNITY COLLEGE DX: DIGITAL PIRATES OF DARK WATER SAGA
For Tax Reasons’ first mini saga featuring the Ronin Dojo Community College DX crew. Video games, revenge, FBI agents, giant robots- it’s got everything but a mecha kitchen sink.
A one off with the Ronin Dojo Community College DX crew. Barry tries his hand at some arts & crafts and ends up losing internet privileges. This short was originally created for the interweb famous Boing Boing, and was paired with a live action behind-the-scenes look at For Tax Reasons.
IM IN UR MANGER KILLING UR SAVIOR
The very first and most famous For Tax Reasons cartoon. Released as a holiday short in November of 2007, it features three nerds turning a nativity scene into a LARP battle. This short introduced the world to Ronin Dojo Community College DX crew, and many confused parents to the concept of Live Action Role Playing.
We followed it up with a couple vlog responses from the characters talking about how bad it was.
A series of shorts centered around the 2008 Presidential Election, parodying the classic public service announcements from the 1980′s G.I. Joe cartoon.
